The Middle

December 2, 2008

how can i hate
you when you taught
me how to love?

the idea breaks through the clouds
in my mind like streaming sunlight
you are standing at the bottom
of an enormous vast black hole
between us
but i can still see you
and i still remember
what your face looks like
and if you waved i would
wave back

but
how can i love you
(again, now, forever)
when you taught me
how to

hate
